I came across this same shrub while picking juneberries in a pasture. I am doing research on it. Not much comes up when you look for a shrub with orange berries.
It looks similar to tartarian honeysuckle but will have to do more research to be sure.

Did you see it flower. IF so what kind of flowers did it have?

after consulting with NDSU's horticulture dept. it is indeed Tatarian Honeysuckle. It is considered invasive in some parts of the country. It was planted in shelterbelts and is spread by birds. The berries are toxic to humans(no deaths reported) but the birds love them. It can be removed chemically or manualy, but will take about three years to totally get ride of it.
